Panda Guides China has information on every province (including
Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan), with details concerning major sights,
off-the-beaten-track attractions, nightlife venues, restaurants, shopping, and hotels and hostels. However, these are features that come

in many ways; there are several features that are particular standouts:
• Written by a team of twelve expats who live in and know
China to ensure readers get all the local secrets.

stand-alone maps, one for the entire country of China and one
each for the cities of Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong.

All of Panda Guides’ city guidebooks come equipped with perforated pullout
maps to help travelers navigate the land, while China comes with a map pack
that includes a map of China, and city maps for Beijing, Shanghai and Hong
Kong. However, being seasoned travelers themselves, they realize that guidebooks aren’t for everyone. That’s why they’ve created a series of stand-alone,
colored maps for the regions of China, Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong.
The China map, which the publisher affectionately refers to as The Great Map
of China, is a handy tool for the long term traveler seeking to explore various
cities in multiple provinces. Depicted is the entire region of greater China with
every province (including Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan) in color, along with
neighboring countries. Major transportation routes, such as railway and highway routes, are clearly marked, and travelers will also be able to easily locate

Panda Guides’ easy-to-use maps are convenient and transportable, making them ideal from the rugged backpacker who
prefers not to use a full-fledged guidebook, and others who’d rather not want to carry around a standard guidebook with
them around all day.
“I wish I had used [Panda Guides] during my 10 weeks [in China]... There’s even overviews on topical issues such as air pollution and an
extensive list of food dishes with Chinese characters included (and to think I walked around with my favourite eggplant dish scribbled on
a piece of paper!). Highly recommended.” ~Becki Enright, Travel Writer & Founder of BordersofAdventure.com
The Panda Guides team in coordination with a local cartographic company designed, created and published the maps.

Whole Body Barefoot
Transitioning Well to Minimal Footwear
Katy Bowman
Barefoot enthusiasts say ditching your shoes is essential for optimal whole-body
function. Doctors say minimalist shoes cause injury. Who’s right? What if they
both are?
In Whole Body Barefoot, biomechanist Katy Bowman explains how both sides
are right and wrong by broadening the perspective of over-simplified “shoes are
good” or “shoes are bad” arguments. Using evolutionary-based and biomechanics arguments, Bowman demonstrates that shoes, in a modern context, have
purpose, but that the trade-off for protection can be reduced whole-body health
if we don’t pick the right shoes for our body and skill-level.
With clear, science-based explanations, Bowman gets to the root of how shoes
affect more than just feet, why we can’t throw our old shoes out the window, and
describes in detail the steps necessary to transition to more natural footwear
safely and effectively.
With over twenty exercises (for more than just the feet!), Whole Body Barefoot
is a must-have for anyone hoping to improve their gait, strengthen their feet, and
optimize their health through whole-body alignment.
Author: Katy Bowman is taking the health-and-wellness world by storm. A biomechanist by training and a problem-solver at heart, Katy has earned an international reputation for educating the general population on alignment and loadscience and as a result, helped thousands to reduce pain, increase bone density,
improve metabolic health, and solve their pelvic floor mysteries. Her blog, Katy
Says, reaches hundreds of thousands of people every month, and thousands
have taken her classes.

Category: Religion/History
As 2014 marked the centennial of the outbreak of the First World
War, this volume explores the powerful religious dimensions of this
dreadful event. The war was fought by the world’s leading Christian
nations, and on all sides, clergy and Christian leaders offered a steady
stream of patriotic and militaristic rhetoric. Many spoke the language
crusade, of apocalypse and Armageddon. Not in medieval or Reformation times, but in the age of aircraft and machine guns, the majority
of the world’s Christians were engaged in a religiously defined struggle
that claimed the lives of more than ten million soldiers and sailors
and of millions of civilians. Later generations find that passionate
religious commitment deeply troubling and in need of urgent explanation.
Without appreciating its religious and spiritual aspects, we cannot
understand the First World War. More important, the world’s modern
religious history makes no sense except in the context of that terrible
conflict. The war created our reality.
Remembering Armageddon grew out of a symposium held at Baylor University in 2014, which reflected on the role of religion in the First
World War, and the relationship between Christianity and state violence. Contributors include Barry Hankins, Philip Jenkins, Darin D.
Lenz, Sarah Miglio and Richard M. Gamble

Religious Hostility
Rodney Stark and Katie E. Corcoran
The world is aflame with religious hostility. Thousands of people are dying for their religion, or because of
it. Churches are burned, mosques are blown up, and people are machine-gunned while they pray. Hundreds of
thousands of Christians are fleeing Muslim nations—many more would join them if they had anywhere to
go. In too many schools, the textbooks advocate killing the Jews; in too many families, daughters are ‘honor
killed’ on the basis of the flimsiest suspicions. Far too many governments are actively complicit in religious
repression and terrorism, while too many others fail to act. Meanwhile, religious hatred flourishes: antiSemitism, anti-Christianism, anti-Muslimism, as well as anti-Atheism.

Upon These Three Things
Jewish Perspectives on Loving God
Jeff Levin
This is a thoughtful introduction to Jewish moral theology and applied social ethics. It summarizes what normative Judaism says about
what it means to love God, how we go about doing so, and how this
affects our lives and our world. For Jews, loving God is morally constructed and outwardly focused, grounded in a convenant that outlines obligations to God, to each other and to the world.
Drawing on biblical and rabbinic sources and the writings of both
sages and contemporary scholars, this book offers a d’rash, or commentary, on the famous words of Rabbi Shimon the Just in Pirke Avot
that “upon these three things the world stands.” Dr. Levin discusses
the importance of a life devoted to torah (learning), avodah (worship),
and g’milut chasadim (acts of loving kindness) as the truest expression of traditional Jewish morality and the surest pathway to both
personal and cultural transformation. Accordingly, Jewish religious
observance and social consciousness are not mutually exclusive but

Tweets and Consequences
60 Social Media Disasters and How You Can
Avoid a Career-Ending Mistake
Michael Schlossberg
These days, it seems as if not a day goes by without some breaking
new and frequently hilarious social media scandal. Perhaps the most
famous example of social media disaster in politics occurred when
former Congressman Anthony Weiner rocked the political world with
a tweet that included a picture of his boxer-covered genitalia. Since
then, many politicians have embarrassed themselves in the social media with crude and often outrageous posts and tweets. Other prominent examples include:
• Taylor Palmisano, a former campaign aide to Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, who tweeted that she would “choke that
illegal Mex.”
• The city of Yokohama, Japan, which incorrectly tweeted that
North Korea had launched a missile against them.
• Joshua Black, Republican candidate for the Florida House of

Nature’s Housekeeper
The Life and Times of a
Trail Maintenance Worker
Michael Gurnow • Introduction by The Aldo Leopold
Foundation • Afterword by Lawton Grinter • Illustrated by
Paris Chrisopoulos
We’ve all read books that changed our lives but one college professor
gets more than he bargains for when he picks up a dusty, dog-eared
copy of the American classic Walden by Henry David Thoreau. Reader
beware: Accidental nakedity ensues.
Proud postmodern consumer and card-carrying member of the “I Hate
Nature” Club, Michael Gurnow is content in his role as American
literature professor at a Midwest college. After a hard day behind the
lectern, he enjoys nothing more than coming home to his overstuffed
sofa in his climate controlled apartment and chowing down on greasy
fast food.
Everything changes once he gets done reading Thoreau’s masterpiece.
Realizing he has been living a life of quiet desperation, it suddenly
occurs to him that even though it’s his job to teach tales of others

lent of a construction worker. “How hard can trail maintenance be?”
he asks himself. “It’s a minimum-wage job.”
Conservation & Protection
He quickly learns there’s a difference between book smarts and common sense. In this mile-a-minute comedy of errors, Gurnow discovers why it’s a bad idea to get into a fistfight with a mudslide, horny hornets are a force to be reckoned with, being able to
identify poison ivy is a grossly undervalued skill, and you can’t outrun deer—even if you’re naked.
With a tie-dye cast of characters, Gurnow compresses seven hard-won years in the wilderness into a single, side-splitting
season. With his newly minted critical eye toward consumer culture, he reveals the surprisingly complex world of trail
maintenance while taking the reader on a guided, philosophic tour of the nature classics.
Michael Gurnow is author of the bestselling The Edward Snowden Affair: Exposing the Politics and Media Behind the NSA
Scandal. His writing has been selected as an Editor’s Choice, served as cover stories, included in college curriculums, and
cited in newspapers and literary journals. A former English professor, he is currently trail maintenance coordinator at one
of the most popular state parks in America. He lives on an organic farm with his very hippie wife.

Little General Gene Mauch: A Baseball Life
Mel Proctor
Gene Mauch enjoyed a journeyman’s career playing in the infield for six different
Major League Baseball franchises, but as a MLB manager he is nothing less than a
legend. Gene led clubs for 23 of 26 years stretching from 1960 to 1987 including the
Philadelphia Phillies, Montreal Expos, Minnesota Twins and two stints at the helm
of the California Angles.
Known as an intense competitor he presided over 1,902 Major League victories, and
a handful of stunning failures. Mauch had a reputation for taunting opposing teams
and was frequently involved in fiery exchanges with umpires. His bombastic personality, brilliant baseball mind, and loyalty to his players earned him the moniker of the
Little General.
“If you had the best club, you had a chance to beat him; if he had the best club,
you had no chance; if the clubs were even, he had the advantage. I managed
against him for a long time. I always had the better teams. (Gene) Mauch wasn’t
aloof (a common accusation), he was only intense.” — Sparky Anderson

Bronx Bombers
New York Yankees Home Run History
Lew Freedman
In 2014 the New York Yankees became the first franchise in the history of Major League
Baseball to hit 15,000 home runs. In many ways the history of the Bronx Bombers’
home runs is the history of the Yankees.
Ruth’s 60 home runs in 1927 was a record that stood for 34 years when it was eclipsed
by Yankee Roger Maris in 1961. All the great names are here like Ruth, Gehrig, Mantle,
Maris, DiMaggio, Berra, Jeter, and the list goes on and on.
This book will not only cover the great hitters and their hitting careers. It will also cover
many of the iconic home runs like Bucky Dent’s shot in Boston, Mickey Mantle’s 565foot shot in Washington, Ruth’s called shot in the 1932 World Series against the Cubs,
as well as promising to hit a home run for a sick child in the hospital, Jackson’s famed
three home runs in three at bats during the 1977 World Series, and many more unforgettable moments.
Author: Lew Freedman is a veteran sportswriter who is the author of more than 70
books, many on baseball, and has been an avid researcher of baseball history. He has
also worked as a sportswriter for the Chicago Tribune, Philadelphia Inquirer, and Anchorage Daily News.
